HTML Code for Get User Location

First we’ll start with creating the structure of the Get User Location project for that as you can see the above code we have used all the necessary elements & attributes to setup the structure. Let us know code the CSS part to add styling and aligned the tags.

<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Get User Location</title>
    <!-- Google Fonts -->
    <link
      href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Poppins:wght@500&display=swap"
      rel="stylesheet"
    />
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <img src="https://i.postimg.cc/8PPRxPwc/location.png" />
      <div id="location-details">Click on the 'Get Location' Button</div>
      <button id="get-location">Get Location</button>
    </div>
    <!-- Script -->
    <script src="script.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

CSS Code for Get User Location

Second comes the CSS code in which we have styled for the structure we have padded as well as aligned the Get User Location project so that it is properly situated and doesn’t get messy with suitable CSS elements. Now lets code the JavaScript part to make responsive.

JavaScript Code for Get User Location

Last stage of the project the JavaScript in which we have added the logical and coded as per the requirement with some conditions. Let us see the Final Output of the project Get User Location using HTML, CSS & JavaScript (Source Code).

let locationButton = document.getElementById("get-location");
let locationDiv = document.getElementById("location-details");

locationButton.addEventListener("click", () => {
  //Geolocation APU is used to get geographical position of a user and is available inside the navigator object
  if (navigator.geolocation) {
    //returns position(latitude and longitude) or error
    navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(showLocation, checkError);
  } else {
    //For old browser i.e IE
    locationDiv.innerText = "The browser does not support geolocation";
  }
});

//Error Checks
const checkError = (error) => {
  switch (error.code) {
    case error.PERMISSION_DENIED:
      locationDiv.innerText = "Please allow access to location";
      break;
    case error.POSITION_UNAVAILABLE:
      //usually fired for firefox
      locationDiv.innerText = "Location Information unavailable";
      break;
    case error.TIMEOUT:
      locationDiv.innerText = "The request to get user location timed out";
  }
};

const showLocation = async (position) => {
  //We user the NOminatim API for getting actual addres from latitude and longitude
  let response = await fetch(
    `https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/reverse?lat=${position.coords.latitude}&lon=${position.coords.longitude}&format=json`
  );
  //store response object
  let data = await response.json();
  locationDiv.innerText = `${data.address.city}, ${data.address.country}`;
};
